Assuming that there was only one initial introduction and no other rabbits from outside I would expect very little variation...unless they did something amazingly stupid like bring in two hundred breeding pairs at the outset. I'm also not sure what that analogy has to do with humans who were not so...

2005 Stony Brook Symposium

Video of the Symposium on Human Evolution at the Stony Brook University in New York. I have watched these several times and just thought some of you may find them interesting.

Did I miss something? What is the "new idea"? As far as buying some kooks book about the "truth" of Genesis, I don't need a book, I already know it is a myth. There is no credible archaeological evidence that any of the events in the book of Genesis ever occured. So is the "new idea" something to do...

I think that wild speculation can often lead to a credible hypothesis. And even if it doesn't at least it is fun. :D

That is the type of thing I would like to see. The patterns of the blood on the clothing, there must have been alot of blood I would like to know where most of it gathered. Also was there blood inside the cap? Did the head wound have an open scalp wound? (probably not since they just found it). Do w...

Nice site Beagle, but I wish they had included more images. for instance the tattooing on his back. and different views of the body. I would also like to see the evidence of the head wound. Is there sufficient evidence to tell if the wound was perimortem, or post mortem. If the wound was severe enou...

That seems to be a rather good interpretation Beagle. Now is there any evidence that would suggest motive?

Though many good scenarios have been brought up in this discussion, I am still leaning toward a territorial skirmish of some sort and Oetzi's body simply fell into a place where his comrades (if victorious) could not find him. I just don't see "highway men" staking out such a location, I also tend t...

Or the arrow shaft could have broken off during a rolling fall into an obscure area where the body wouldn't have been found to be robbed, and the head trauma happened during the fall as well.

Re: Questions

R/W, you have an interesting find but there isn't enough data to make any conclusions. I agree with Charlie that you should go back to the site and use your woman's intuition to look for any other signs of habitation. I would go upstream first and then downstream, looking along the banks of the riv...

Thanks for posting the pictures for me Cog, I really appreciate it. I suppose I could use the quote feature to make comments but I will just write a few here. If you were holding this rock in your hand instead of looking at the (poor quality) pictures you would be able to see that there is an arch i...

wouldn't that be great to have the money to buy a nice camera. Instead, as a struggling stundent I have to rely on what I have a cheap digital camera that has a long shutter delay and crappy auto focus. But if you would like to donate the equipment I would be more than happy to take pics of everythi...

Good idea Min.

Charlie, I just sent some pics to Cognito, he will post them for me, but they are probably not very good because my better camera has dead batteries, I will take better pics tomorrow when I get new batteries.

footprints??? it's a question

Hey everybody, How ya'll doing? I have a question. Is it possible for sedimentary rock to settle in an ancient footprint then eventually come loose forming a sort of natural cast of a human foot? If so, how long (minimum) for this process to occur? I ask this question because, I recently found an or...
